Season six of Game of Thrones will be out on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD this week. I love this show. The characters are interesting, the story is fantastic, and the plot is very unpredictable. And if you’ve seen the HBO series, then you know the writers are not afraid of killing off main characters — including popular characters I like. In fact, season five ended with the apparent death of Jon Snow. Anyways, I love season six of Game of Thrones. It’s just as good as the previous seasons. I can’t wait to see season seven. BTW, Game of Thrones: The Complete Sixth Season will make an excellent gift for a fan of the series.
Looking for an inexpensive gift for a dad who loves movies? Then you are in luck. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment recently released the 20th Anniversary Edition of Independence Day. I saw the action-packed sci-fi film about 20 years ago. It was good back then and just as good when I watched it again recently. I think many dads would enjoy Independence Day too — especially if they are going to see the upcoming Independence Day: Resurgence (opens in theaters June 24th). Independence Day – 20th Anniversary Edition is available now on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD. BTW, an Attacker Edition is also available. It includes a limited edition 3D Alien Ship Collector’s Set for the super fan.
Looking for an inexpensive gift idea for Father’s Day? If you are, get dad a Chef Remi Grill Mat. I received a set for review on my dad blog and I love it. Normally when I grill, I have to super heat my grill first, then scrub the old gunk off the grill before I can cook my next masterpiece. But with the Chef Remi Grill Mats, I don’t have to clean first. I can actually start grilling right away. And when I’m done grilling, I can use a sponge and soapy water to quickly clean the mats. The Chef Remi Grill Mat is a big time saver. And thanks to Chef Remi, I’m giving away a set of two Chef Remi grill mats on my blog.
Still looking for a gift idea for a girl? How about the Nerf Rebelle Codebreaker Crossbow Blaster. Thanks to movies like the Hunger Games and Brave, my kids are into bows and arrows. Don’t worry parents, the arrows are actually soft foam darts. Obviously dads and moms need to tell their kids not to aim the crossbow at someone’s face. BTW, it’s classified as a girl toy on the Hasbro website, but I think it’s fine for boys too.
Check out the Riddler costume I received for review on my dad blog. My son picked it out from the Wholesale Costume Club website. Apparently, he wants to be a villain next Halloween. As you can probably guess, Halloween is big at our house. In fact, a costume wouldn’t be consider a bad gift for Christmas in our family. I know, we’re weird. BTW, the costume is available in both medium and large sizes. The regular price for the item at Wholesale Costume Club is $28.98 ($26.96 for members).
The kids and I recently watched Marvel Knights: The Wolverine Collection. Shout! Factory sent me the 5-DVD set for review on my dad blog. The kids and I really enjoyed the Marvel Knights: The Wolverine Collection. The stories were interesting and gritty. The 5-DVD set is an excellent gift for fans of Wolverine. Marvel Knights: The Wolverine Collection is available now. It has a list price of $29.93, but you can currently purchase the DVD set on Amazon for $16.99. Note: even though the stories are animated (motion comic book style), the DVD set is probably intended for older kids and adults. There are a lot of bloody scenes and some of the content is suggestive.
Thanksgiving is two weeks away and soon the Christmas season will begin. Actually, many retailers have already been running Christmas specials. Speaking of Christmas, I have a great holiday gift idea — the PUNK wireless speaker. Sol Republic sent me a unit for review on my dad blog and I can tell you it is awesome. I think music lovers will love the PUNK portable speaker. It uses Bluetooth technology to stream music from your mobile device to the speaker. It sounds great. Continue reading to find out how you can win the PUNK wireless speaker.
Hello parents. I just want to let you know about a promotion for Collage.com. Right now you can get a 51% discount off their hardcover photo book (20-page, 11.5″x8″). I have two things to say about that. First, that’s not a typo. It’s really is 51%, and not 50%. It’s an odd discount, but it is what it is. The second thing I like to say is that I love photo books. I love getting them and I think they make wonderful gifts for relatives and close friends.
Father’s Day is about two weeks away, so I thought I’ll offer a gift idea: British Sterling Cologne. The product is very affordable with a price tag of only $24.99 per bottle. In addition, the cologne isn’t hard to find — it’s available at stores like WalMart, Kmart and Rite Aid. British Sterling Cologne is a wonderful gift for the dad who loves to smell good. And thanks to British Sterling Cologne, I’m giving a prize pack on my dad blog. The prize pack consists of two bottles of their cologne.
